I dont see how you think you can get 5 fans on that its just meant to have 1 on the top of it. I was thinking of getting the xp-120 but i think im going to get watercooling now.

You could do a lot more good with one fan than with 5. One fan will pull a steady stream of cool air over the fins, while 5 will cause confusion and turbulance, most likely reducing the flow of air over and through the fins. More isn't always better!

what u can do is to make a duct straight from front in take fan. so fresh cold air is always blowing on to ur CPU. and 1 panaflo or delta fan will be way enough.
